OK, I make plushies, and their hair is meticulously stitched in embroidery thread. All of the plushies I have made so far have had straight hair (they're based off real people so each plushie is an original). But if I want to make a plush of someone with curly hair, how do I make the hair curl? Will I have to use another material for hair, or can I make the embroidery thread curl?
Right now I'm trialing hair gel, plaiting the thread (hopefully it will be curly when it unravels) and PVA glue.
Has anyone done this before and can they give me pointers?
